What is it ?
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
How to get in:
To be accepted into the National Honor Society you need maintain a GPA of at least a 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, and study for standardized test, like the SAT or ACT. Get involved in school activities by participating in clubs, and take on leadership positions whenever you can.
Why is is important:
NHS encourages student achievement. As a school leader, one of your primary concerns likely is to promote positive school climate and provide opportunities to motivate all students to reach their greatest potential in school and in life.
